At Align Chiropractic Center, we offer cupping therapy as part of our comprehensive approach to holistic healing and wellness. Cupping is an ancient therapeutic technique that involves placing special cups on the skin to create suction, which helps to release tension, improve circulation, and promote relaxation. Our skilled practitioners are trained in the art of cupping and utilize this gentle yet effective therapy to address a variety of musculoskeletal issues and enhance overall well-being.

What is cupping therapy, and how does it work?

Cupping therapy involves placing cups on the skin and creating suction to lift the underlying tissue. This suction draws blood flow to the area, which can help release tight muscles, alleviate pain, and promote healing. Cupping therapy is believed to stimulate the flow of energy (Qi) in the body, according to traditional Chinese medicine principles. At Align Chiropractic Center, our practitioners use both stationary and moving cupping techniques to target specific areas of tension and address individual concerns.

What conditions can cupping therapy help with?

Cupping therapy can be beneficial for a wide range of conditions, including muscle tension, back pain, neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, and fibromyalgia. It can also help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote relaxation, making it an excellent complement to chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy. Our experienced team at Align Chiropractic Center will assess your unique needs and determine if cupping therapy is an appropriate treatment option for you.

Is cupping therapy safe?

Yes, cupping therapy is generally safe when performed by a trained and experienced practitioner. The suction created by the cups may cause temporary bruising or redness on the skin, but this is typically mild and resolves quickly. It’s essential to communicate openly with your practitioner about any health concerns or medical conditions you may have to ensure that cupping therapy is safe and appropriate for you. At Align Chiropractic Center, your safety and comfort are our top priorities, and we are committed to providing you with the highest quality care in a welcoming and supportive environment.
